Are there any divorced Mamas out there?

Do you ever miss being married? I mean, I get so lonely (divorced for 10 years). I have had boyfriends but none lasted for more than a month or two. I'm just afraid that I'll be alone forever.

  • I divorced my first husband.And remarried 3 years later.but sometimes I miss my freedom from when I was single.Being married isn't always wonderful and nice.Especially going to a blended family.

  • In in the process of divorce now, and it couldn't happen quicker. My hubby was a big problem for me. I so welcome my life, now that he's out of it. I think marriage is beautiful, if you marry the right person. If you're completely ready to date, then go for it. But if you're meeting ppl and it's only lasting a month or two, evaluate them closely to see who/what you're choosing. Trust me, I've learned my lesson, lol. But be patient and learn from each relationship you're in. Lonely is no excuse to settle! So don't. Find the man YOU want to be with for the rest of your life. God bless!

  • I used to miss being married but now love the freedom. I can see men whenever I want and not be bothered with them when I don't. I've not met one that I'd want to marry! I've cared deeply for a few over the years but I like sending them home when I get tired of them. I can't see me married again but won't slam the door on the idea. I think men can sense when a woman gets that "I want to be married again" feeling and they leave. Maybe if you can relax and just enjoy the "now" then the right guy might come along and hang out.

  • i'm divorced. Don't worry about being alone. You just haven't met someone deserving of you. It will come to you. There is a lady on here who was "alone" for almost 20 yrs before she found her Mr. Right. Keep your head up, he will find you when the time is right.

  • I know how it feels to think that you'll be alone forever but sometimes its not the case.

    Take up some sort of activity to ease this off of your mind. One thing to remember is, sometimes when you're not looking for love it pops right up in your face...Good luck

Go out and find what makes you feel FABULOUS !!
